About 100 kilometres southwest of central Melbourne, Gladioli - a restaurant set in a weatherboard house surrounded by gardens in the idyllic semi-rural town of Inverleigh - is ideal for long, lazy lunches.
Book ahead for a five-course tasting menu devised by chef Matthew Dempsey, who grew up in rural western Victoria and insists on using local, seasonal produce - carrots, raisins, olive oil & chestnuts.
Your meal might include lamb bred on a family-run pasture only 10 minutes away from the restaurant, paired with berries plucked from a hill up the road, plus leek, swede & parmesan ...
... or other thoughtfully put-together combinations that spark culinary synergy, such as prawns & mussels with radish, miso & green tea, or pork, horseradish & mustard, or apples, scones & cream.
